2009 Firmware for DS Lite Acekard version 6?
Is anyone aware of whether newer DS Lites (those manufactured in early2009) have any problems with the Acekard 2i? Specifically, do the newer DS Lites still operate with version 5 firmware and if they run version 6 firmware, are the Acekard 2i updates from October compatible for use on version 6 firmware?
